TV wont turn on and makes a chirping sound from the back. There is no click sound for a relay when the button is pressed. I am able to troubleshoot but I am not familiar with part nomenclature, so please describe what to do to this novice.

Tv wont turn on, making chirping noises coming from back of TV, when plugged in.

that sound is the horizontal oscillator trying to start. something has shorted out the horizontal output transistor. this problem is fairly easy to troubleshoot and easily repaired by any reputable tv shop.

Phillips Magnavox Proj. TV only makes cyclic chirping sound

Most common reason is shorted convergence chips. Goto the site and get their "chirping set" repair kit.

When tv turned screen is blank and chirping sound comes from back

A chirping sound usually means that one of the secondary supplies has shorted, most likely the horizontal output transistor. The power supply "chirps", which is the sound it makes when it protects itself from drawing too much current. The set should be serviced by someone with experience in Philips projection TV'.
